The Theatre Royal and Royal Concert Hall are based in the heart of Nottingham's city centre. Both venues play host to a diverse range of shows and events offering the very best in family entertainment, musicals, drama, dance, ballet, comedy, opera and classical, contemporary and pop music.

Theatre Royal & Royal Concert Hall Redevelopment Summer 2017

The second phase of the Theatre Royal & Royal Concert Hall Nottingham’s Royal Transformation Project commenced on 6 June, transforming the venue in to an all-day destination with improved dining opportunities, better disability access, and more community and business use.

The front entrance to the Theatre Royal will remain open and unaffected throughout the period of building work. From 23 July, the daytime box office counter will be temporarily relocated from the Royal Concert Hall foyer to the Theatre Royal foyer. The box office counter and call centre will be open as normal from Monday to Saturday 9am – 8.30pm. Online booking via the Theatre Royal & Royal Concert Hall website will also continue as normal.

Any customer enquiries regarding access to either venue during this period should be made to the box office on 0115 989 5555 or by emailing
